Today I thought I would do something that I haven’t done in far too long, which is a Fairyloot unboxing! I love both seeing other people unbox bookish boxes as well as sharing with you my own unboxing, as it is something I always love doing and discovering what items are included this month. Now also seemed like the perfect time to do another of these posts, as I will not be able to do one for a while after this, and so I wanted to make the most of my last opportunity to do so.
So here is my October Fairyloot unboxing!
As is now an essential item in every Fairyloot box, the first thing included this month was this Aelin Candle inspired by the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. Aelin is certainly a deceptive character, and so I can not wait to burn this lovely smelling candle from Nerd Poured Candles whilst I continue making my way through this epic series.
Next up is one of my favourite items included this month, as these playing cards are absolutely gorgeous! I can not wait to (carefully!) use this deck inspired by The Cruel Prince by Holly Black with my family and friends, and to continue to admire the beautiful artwork featured on them by Emily Haynes in collaboration with Fiction Tea Designs.
These Deceptive Queen Socks are exactly what I need to keep my feet warm this winter! Although I have yet to read The Red Queen series, it is one that is currently on my TBR, so hopefully it won’t be too long before I can discover some of the trickery and deception within this story whilst wearing these.
This Stories Keychain is another inspired by a series I have yet to start, The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski, but that is not going to stop me from immediately adding it to my keys. This item is from KDP Letters, and I love everything about it, from the purple tassel to the design on the book.
There is little better than sitting down with a good book with a cup of tea in your hand, and so I was super excited to see that this months box included a blend of tea called Wren’s Secrets perfect for doing just that. This peppermint green tea from the Tea Leaf Company is inspired by one of the characters in this month’s book, so I can’t wait to read it and discover this deceptive character for myself.
Here is the second item currently vying to become my favourite included this month – a Mourners Beanie inspired by the Six of Crows Duology, one of my all time favourite series! This gorgeous hat from Fiction Tea Designs is one that I am almost certainly going to be wearing constantly for the next few months whilst I anxiously wait for the release of King of Scars.
Just before we get to the book included in October’s box, we were also treated to another bonus item inspired by Leigh Bardugo’s books, in the form of these Grisha pin badges. I can not wait to pin these to my bag and to share my love for this world. And yes, I have of course already taken the quiz – I am an Alkemi, of the Materealki!
Finally, the book included in this months box is Girls of Paper & Fire by Natasha Ngan, a fantasy inspired by Asian mythology that follows Lei as she is taken to become a concubine to a demon king along with eight other girls. Not only does this story sound exactly like my type of read, but I also haven’t read an Asian-inspired fantasy since Smoke in the Sun, so I can not wait to see what this one has in store!
Along with this months gorgeous book, that featured an exclusive cover and sprayed edges, we were also treated to a Poppy Wars bookmark, and a Sawkill Girls postcard, both of which I am super excited to add to my collection.
